  • Demystifying RCEP and other Regional Trade Agreements and what this means for business

With the soon to be ratified replacement to the TPP (CPTPP) in full swing and China’s version of its own regional trade agreement called RCEP, which really is ASEAN and its bilateral partners, you could be excused for being confused.

 We live in a strange trade world … with longstanding regional and global agreements being abandoned or renegotiated and others taking form from the shadows.

 Why is it important for companies to make sense of this and what impact will it have on future business?

 Join us the first of a series of seminars around the Region designed to provide a better understanding of what these agreements mean and why they are important to you.

Special guest speaker:

Dr Deborah Elms, Founder and Executive Director of the Asian Trade Centre. Dr. Elms sits on the International Technical Advisory Committee of the Global Trade Professionals Alliance and is Chair of the Working Group on Trade Policy and Law.  She is also a senior fellow in the Singapore Ministry of Trade and Industry’s Trade Academy. Previously, Dr Elms was head of the Temasek Foundation Centre for Trade & Negotiations (TFCTN) and Senior Fellow of International Political Economy at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. More here
